Homeland Security graduates first Corps of Homeland Youth

Via Knuckledraggin' My Life Away

 

The federal government calls them FEMA Corps. But they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930’s Germany. Regardless of their name, the Dept of Homeland Security has just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth. Kids, aged 18-24 and recruited from the President’s AmeriCorp volunteers, they represent the first wave of DHS’s youth corps, designed specifically to create a full time, paid, standing army of FEMA Youth across the country.

On September 13, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security graduated its first class of FEMA Corps first-responders. While the idea of having a volunteer force of tens of thousands of volunteers scattered across the country to aid in times of natural disasters sounds great, the details and timing of this new government army is somewhat curious, if not disturbing.

  1. Disturbing..... and just exactly are they to do? What functions are they to perform? Paid with what? What powers of authority do they have (if any)? TSA wannabe's??

  4. Useful idiots operating on familiar turf, which makes them more dangerous than the blue bonnet barbarian brigade.

    1. Unlike most local disaster response teams who are volunteers, training periodically and only showing up when there’s a disaster, the FEMA Corps will be a paid, full time, standing army of government youth.

      More waste of fiat money.

    2. This is a very dangerous escalation of government power & control.
